Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
When was this consumed?Was this clay litter? If so, clumping or non-clumping?
The most important thing right now is to try to get as much fluid into his intestines as you can to help water down the clumping litter. Left to it's own devices, this may clump in the intestines and cause a gastric blockage. The cerenia that was given will help with any vomiting for 24 hours.You can use watered down milk, chicken broth, etc. Aim for at least 1 cup per 20 pounds of body weight every 2-4 hours around the clock. If vomiting begins again, he's not taking in any food or water, intestinal cramping begins, etc. he needs to be seen by your veterinarian again. At that point a barium series may be needed to determine if a blockage has occurred and if there is a need for surgical approach. You can also feed boiled rice and chicken to help move the clay through the bowels.

Chicken broth is fine regardless of age.When did the vomiting occur in relation to the cerenia shot?How many hours since he last vomited?
How long ago was the cerenia injection given?
It's been long enough that you should be seeing benefits. If the vomiting persists, you're going to need to have him examined again. Often when we see breakthrough vomiting with cerenia, it's time to move on to more diagnostics to determine if a blockage has occurred. If this persists tonight, I would urge you to have him examined and treated at the ER this evening. Failing this, he needs to return to your vet's office tomorrow morning for continued therapy and diagnostics.
